Question about 1992 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Tranny My accord only shifts up at 3500 rpm and only shifts to 2500 rpm so there isnt much room between gears. It won't shift down on hills to maintain speed and won't shift up when cruising on the highway to save gas. I don't know what could be the problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Ok...I need to know a little bit more. How many miles are on your Accord? If it's somewhere around 150k, you may be looking to get some transmission service done, or your solenoids may be worn out. If you are stopped, and you put your foot on the gas to get going, it won't shift till it hits 3500rpm? This isn't that bad....but when it shifts does it bang into the next gear or does it shift fairly smooth. Also, when you finally get it into 4th gear (OD), and you push on the gas to accelerate (fairly firmly), does it seem to have a "half" gear (like it's not quite dropping into 3rd). There is a long list of possibilities that this could be, but I'm willing to bet it's the vacuum line on your rear motor mount, worn out solenoid valves, a sticking throttle cable or gunked up throttly body or some combination of the above. Drop me a line and I'll see what I can come up with.

The problem is your shifting rods in your transmission. they are worn down and need new ones. if it won't shift into any high gears then you need to replace the rod to which iy won't shift into. they are cheap parts. about 40 to 60 bucks for a set.

Transmission -does fine until it warms up, then does not want to shift correctly, drive begins flashing.


d flash mans, tranny fault
so scan it. us the obd2 scan tool, any and scan it.
the A/T IS VERY complex, do the tests shown in the FSM
guessing dont work
but in general (experience)
wont shift correctly dont cut it. (200 parts, and 50 was to mess up)
????
flare, skips gears, wont up shift, wont down shift, or shifts wrong speed. what gears work, what dont. just a clue and help goes get better
The tranny TCM can go to limphome mode, this mode is very clear.
and covered in the FSM and
one common failure, that happens with high mileage and poor service (not doing a flush at 50k miles)
is stuck in 1st gear, hot. only.
the ATF fluid gets more thin hot and pump output drops
this is usually a vary bad sign.
the Stall test fails.
the pump pressure test fails, hot.
there is no vacuum lines to this electronically shifted trans.
the ended back 1990(about). with old 3speeds.

scan it, could be something slimple like
the PRNDL shift switch fibbing like crazy. (common)
this car has TCM, a transmission brain.
look for OBD2 DTC errors P07xx (trans)
this TCM (part of PCM) function relies on sensor for shifting
they are:
1: TPS
2: engine INPUT rpm
3: tranny output rpm
4: shift selector.
5: ECT (engine temps)
6: ECU part of the PCM calculates load at all times and sends that to the TCM , so that TCM can down shift on hills, or upshift faster on the flat or down hill.
this LOAD feature is what replaced the VACUUM of old days.

The D light , hopefully is just a bad input (cheap)
scan it. and see, its begging for you to do that.

P0756 code Honda accord 2005


P0756all p07 codes are tranny.


  • Shift Solenoid 'B' Stuck Off (read the FSM page on 756 it tells you how to do the checks )

  • if 756 is cleared. (reset it using the scan tool, drive 20 miles, still set?)?

    if you get them clear, all DTCs
    do the tranny stall test. stated n the FSM.
    stall the torque converter. in 1st gear, parked.
    if rpm is too low the engine has power issues
    if Rpm is way too high (slip?) bad tranny. (or wires to it)

    I just bought a 2001 pontiac grand am se with 99890 miles. I would like to know what rpm is the proper shift point from first to second gear? Mine shifts at like 3000 to 3500 rpm and shifts firmly is that...


    Hello,well at what rpm it shifts at of course depends on how hard your pressing the accelerator at that moment,if you floor the accelerator it will shift at higher rpm (red line) but if you take off very slowly it should shift at a much lower rpm....but to answer your question 3000-3500 is a good shifting rpm( if the gauge red lines at 6000-6500 rpm) and firm shifting is a good thing,slow,sluggish and hesitant shifting is a sign of bad things to come from a tranny!! ps keep the engine oil,and transmission oil changed for long life out of your car engine and tranny. good luck and enjoy your new car......yz-maniac.

    I have a 2002 ls trail blazer and when im at a stop i accelerate and it is not shifting to the next gear goes all the way to 3500 rpm before it shift. Would you know what causes that ?


    if the tranny is low on oil it won't be able to produce enough haydralice pressure in the tranny to shift to the next gear!, or there could be a faulty shift or speed sensior

    Try a tranny service change a place that changes the filter the pan gasket and fluid not some of these quick places that just drain a couple quarts out of the tranny lines and thats it that wont help but a complete tranny service should help.

    With normal acceleration the 1st to second shift point should be around 2500-3000 rpm. Most of your shifts under moderate acceleration will take place at this same point or when there a light load on the transmission. Under hard acceleration the RPMs will climp higher due to increased power needs and the computer will shift when less power is needed or the RPMs climb to an unsafe speed say5000-6000rpms (depending on where yours redlines). Also going up a steep hill will raise the RPMs higher and goind down a hill will cause a faster shift at lower RPMs. These can always be altered by an individual owner by adjusting shift points, using performance parts and if you have problems (low tranny fluid/trans issues). Your trans RPMS are fine and will vary depening on how your foot accelerates. The shift pattern should be the same every time you drive slow/medium/fast/, look for changes in those patterns you will also catch a problem early.

    I have a 94' chevy 3500 dually with the 6.5 turbo diesel.


    If it was the trani I would be waiting to hear you say something like it slams into gear or the RPM's go up but the speed doesn't follow. you can try to shift it in low and manually shift it up as needed. It could be that your truck is not starting out in first but rather second. Am I on the right track, is this what your trying to describe.
